What is the meaning of the phrase "se me cuida"? It's been used several times in correspondence the most recent being besos de nuevo se me cuida. Help!

It comes from the reflexive verb, cuidarse, which means to take care of oneself. Se me cuida. - He/She/It takes care of; watches over me. Dios (taking the place of 'se') me cuida. - God watches over me. or Se me cuida a Dios. - God watches over me. La música me cuida cuándo me siento mal. Music takes care of me when I feel bad. Besos de nuevo se me cuida. - Kisses take care of; watch over me again. I believe that's the right context; as far as in inglés. It sounds a bit strange. Perhaps it means something totally different in español. Anyone care to comment if my assumption is wrong? Which I think may be wrong.

¡Hola! I can't say I have heard that phrase before, but looking at it I would have to agree with C_Norita in a way... I think the sentence reads "Kisses again, I'm being taken care of" or if we simply look at the overall meaning it would be something like this... "Once again I send you kisses, don't worry I'm being taken care of or people are helping me". Hope it helps. Mauricio
